It has been just over a year since the mainstream media’s “New Civil War” began in earnest.
While they are only admitting to the violence and hatred that we see today as being a part of this larger conflict, that it merely because they refuse to allow James T. Hodgkinson to be acknowledged as the true impetus of this battle.
Hodgkinson, as many will remember, attempted to assassinate a number of GOP congressmen who were practicing for an annual charity baseball game on a field in Virginia. He succeeded only severely wounding a number of legislators, including Louisiana House member Steve Scalise. The deep south Rep was sidelined for several months after the incident, but went on to make a full recovery and was greeted with a hero’s welcome upon his return to Capitol Hill.
Now, a scant few months later, another incident of direct violence against the GOP has emerged.
A man was arrested on suspicion of felony assault and other charges after allegedly attempting to stab a Republican congressional candidate with a switchblade over the weekend at in Castro Valley, according to the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office.
On Sunday, September 9, at approximately 3:45 p.m., deputies working at the Castro Valley Fall Festival were alerted to a possible knife attack at one of the vendor booths.
Deputies arrived at the booth and made contact with the victim, Republican candidate Rudy Peters, who is running against incumbent Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Dublin) for the 15th congressional district seat
The Castro Valley News first reported on the attack.
According to witnesses, 35-year-old Castro Valley resident Farzad Fazeli approached Peters at his booth in an aggressive manner and made disparaging, profanity-laced remarks about the Republican party and President Donald Trump.
During the incident, Fazeli allegedly pulled out a switchblade knife and attempted to stab Peters. The knife malfunctioned and the candidate became involved in a physical struggle with Fazeli, according to sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly.
In Hodgkinson’s case, his actions were preceded exactly two weeks to the day by Kathy Griffin’s gruesome beheading stunt that depicted President Trump as the victim of her personal, radical Islamic ritual-killing fantasy.
In the case of Fazeli, he’ll have his choice of dogwhistles, as the radical left has been steadily ramping up their violent, conservative-combatting vitriol over the course of the last month.
